Dear Readers,

Welcome to the August edition of Myanmar Insider, the only English-language business news journal designed especially for people who are keen to keep up with the critical business and economy issues of Myanmar. Our team is very pleased to receive positive feedback from the readers who are appreciative of our efforts. MI team will continue to bring quality content for our readers across the country! For this edition, you’ll find a mixture of news, in-depth interviews, special features and regular business columns on a wide range of issues covering telecoms, transportation, education and cultural issues. One special focus in this issue is the role of education. Specifically, I hope you will find an article about vocation education. Columnist Anu Seth also writes about how private tuition is becoming a norm for many students in Myanmar. You may also find an interview with Ooredoo CEO insightful and interesting. I personally like Shalini’s article about Bagan as it tells me the difference between a Zeidi and Pahto as well as where to visit in this ancient city. I hope you enjoy reading this issue and do let us know if there are any topics you’d like to see covered in the future.

Yours Sincerely,
Jeffrey Windsor
